Bulls coach Francis Cummins is hoping new owner and chairman Marc Green will fund the signings required to keep the club in Super League.

Green addressed staff, players and Cummins’ backroom team yesterday morning and spoke of his background in business and desire to engineer an upturn in fortunes at Odsal.

The Leeds businessman’s first task will be to bolster a threadbare squad with new recruits as the Bulls seek to climb away from relegation danger.

They are currently stuck on minus two points and Cummins is hopeful that additions will soon materialise.

He said: “I’ve been almost playing fantasy football manager for the past three months, looking at who I’d like and who’s available.

"I don’t know if I’m a millionaire or if we have to find another way.

"We need some numbers and I’ve got all kinds of lists. There are loads of players on that list and you have to have a first, second and third option in every position.

“Again it depends on who is available and what sort of funds there are.

“We’re in round seven but you get to round ten and things start to happen – players not getting game-time, there are a few fall-outs or even NRL players start to become available.

“I’ve got people from other clubs asking if we are after players in certain positions, which shows that it’s not that hard to get players in. We’ve got to keep our finger on the pulse.”

Green, 48, was unavailable for interview yesterday but Cummins said the change of ownership had breathed new life into the club.

“Marc came in to address the players before training,” said Cummins.

“He was really straight to the point. He’s like the rest of us, he’s wanting to achieve. He’s going to do his best and so are we.

"It was a nice little present for us all. We’ve been in a tumble drier for a while, being thrown all over the place. There were a few more smiles. It was a bit of closure for them.”

Bulls winger Jamie Foster said he had been left impressed by Green’s address to Cummins’ squad and backroom staff.

Foster said: “I’m over the moon because it’s finally sorted. I don’t know his background but he came in and spoke to us this morning.

“At first impressions, he seems a really good bloke and you can tell he’s a proper businessman.

“There is no messing with him – he’s straight-talking and he said he had 800 people working for him and five companies with a turnover of £45million per year.

“That’s proper money you are talking about so it’s what we needed because things couldn’t have gone on for much longer.”

Cummins, meanwhile, is hopeful the Bulls can put months of uncertainty surrounding the club’s ownership behind them.

He said: “During pre-season, we were thinking about our livelihoods.

“Are we going to get paid on time? Are we going to get paid at all?

“Now we’ve got that bit of assurance that we’ll be getting paid, you feel as if you can take on the world.

“It just feels that we are ready to go again and hopefully get some support for the players and a few numbers in.

“The good feeling is there – we just needed to shake off all that rubbish which has surrounded us for months.

“I’m just glad that we can concentrate on our actual job now because it leaves you drained.

“You even tend to not go to places. I enjoy watching my old amateur club, Dewsbury Celtic, and I’ve not been for a few weeks because you just get sick of people asking ‘how is it? how are you?’

“Although it’s nice that they are concerned, you would like to make one big announcement that you don’t even know what’s going on.

“It’s just a constant thing and it wears you down at times.”

Former Bradford Northern player Steve Ferres has been appointed as managing director and will work alongside chief executive Robbie Hunter-Paul.

Marc is obviously not a man with a high profile, but with businesses of that size and that number of employees he's obviously got some clout. How much he will put into new player recruitment remains to be seen but it is beginning to feel like at last we have a proper businessman in charge, and the stability that should bring is perhaps just starting. He'll be criticised on here by the usual posters, but I don't think he would take on this huge project if he didn't think it was viable, and it appears that he has already done great deal of work behind the scenes. Let's all get behind the club and look forward instead of back, and give the Bulls the support they deserve.

Agree entirely with Shipley Paul. Marc has conducted himself with quite efficiency and has undoubtedly worked hard behind the scenes without using the Social Media to convey everything. That is not however a swipe at others who have, just an observation.
I’ve never attended a match at Odsal, or anywhere else for that matter to be entertained by the Owner, Chairman or BOD’s. What the Bulls need now is a period of stability and the way forward has to be sustainable. Yes, we need to bring in players to do our very best to avoid the ‘drop’ and I’m certain that is recognised by Marc Green and must of been a part of his Business Plans. Franny C has demonstrated his capability through very troubled waters and I have full confidence in him rebuilding our squad with the means he will be given.
Let’s now move forward. It’s been a sorry mess for too long now. It won’t happen overnight but let’s pray that the journey starts now. COYB’s

I have said the same thing several times on this forum - Francis Cummins deserves recognition beyond anything he will ever be offered. How he has kept the team together and remained dignified throughout is beyond me. The squad may be small but the loyalty and committment has been immense. Each and every one of these guys could have walked. They didnt. It is in no small part due to Francis that we have a team to be saved.

Lets stop moaning. Stop second guessing. We have an owner. We have a team. Lets get behind these guys and show them why Bradford Bulls is still the great team that it always has been.

Eight hundred and fifty employees now for Marc + £45m turnover is not a two bob businessman like we have had. This chap appears to be a very professional person with business and financial clout. I am also glad to see him bring in his own manager. He could have simply left it as it is with Robbie and Duffy but he hasn't. Ferres has a reputation of being very strong minded in how he wants things done so maybe he is the right choice at this moment in time and it does give us the feel of a fresh start while also keeping Robbie.

We should all stay open minded about this and give both Marc and Steve our support and hope they are the real deal this time. Give them time before we judge them!

You will all think I am mad but I would have a chat with Park Avenue and their Bradford born billionaire about getting together and sharing a re-vamped Odsal or letting him build a new stadium for us to share. Now how about that for an idea. Come on Robbie, get on the phone today.

You can turnover all you like but making a good profit is something else Eric France with record commodities prices managed to go bust!
Looking on duedil at his 11 directorships SSG is the only company which has a positive net worth (£262k, cash £25k) all the others are not active, dissolved or in negative equaity. So how much cash does he really have to invest or does he need to realise his £250k debenture?
Just a comment before I'm told not to poo poo the new found enthusiasm, he was third choice with his bid so didn't offer that much. So I would just keep your fingers crossed and look to see by actions in the way of giving Franny the power to recruit some weight to the front row and see what happens.
Hopefully the powers that be know he is a good appointment and can reward the players and back room staff with what hey deserve and some stability.

Whoever took over someone will do a google search and find areas to have doubts about. Mandy has had problems with businesses and paying debts off. People with money like to keep it tucked away and don't like to pay anything they don't need to pay. We will all know how serious he is by the end of April. If Franny has nothing to spend other than loans then no he isn't going to spend. But if Franny signs some good players then he may be putting his hand in his pocket. I agree about the turnover not being a guarantee but he is the sole owner of a £45m turnover so if he only makes 2.3% profit each year he gets £1m which I suspect is slightly better than OK makes on his two curry houses. I will make a judgement after a month when we will all have a better idea what his intentions are.

I don't see why so many on here are obsessed with him putting money in to sign players.

As I understand it FC had a number of players lined up both on loan and straight signings and they weren't going to cost a fortune, before the the Moore and co deal collapsed. Presumably these players are still available.

If FC is only allowed to go ahead with these, we will be in a much better position than we are currently and it doesn't need Marc Green to find a great deal of money if any to do it.

There won't be any signing fees so it will be wages only, which will be funded from cash flow so what's the problem ?

Boost the squad - start winning a few games - bring back some stay away fans - signings fund themselves ! Simples.

Don't forget that the rules state a team can only have 5 loans at the same time. We have 4 as our fifth one went back to Wigan injured. That means we have room for him to come back or a new one. Anyone else will be actual signings. Agree with above. It doesn't mean big fees. Players tend to be released or sold for nominal fees. It will be wages only so no big investment needed up front. Seven months and then we get - I think £1.8m rather than the £600k we have had this and last year. Seven months to get through and then we should be fine.

That's where he gets his money. He's thick as pig sh*t and I would put a shiny pound coin bet that he's not sat in the Chairman's office in 12 months time. MattLondon

Yes he is. He may have been pushed into being no. 1 earlier than he would have liked but his pedigree is second to none and his ability to motivate is fantastic.
He has learnt off the best and if we had couple more decent props up front we would now be in positive points.
No way, we'll be lucky to finish this season with 2 points, he'll take us down and it's where we'll stay till him and the complete waste of space, Lee St hilaire are sacked.

Need 2 experienced props asap.
Hope FC has some in mind and management backing
Only ones might be available Fikar or Bailey neither can get a game. Both will give away penalties but add spice to our pack. May be a season long contract with options would benefit all parties.
